Hendo thinks Jones vs Sonnen is nothing more than a “circus act” | UFC News

Dan Henderson adds to the list of leery people voicing disapproval of his training partner and friend, Chael Sonnen leaping to the front of line for a title shot.  “Hendo” was promised the next light heavyweight title shot against champ, Jon Jones, prior to his injury.

“That wasn’t directed at Chael at all.  It is what it is.  I called it how I saw it.  I could have said that the UFC is promoting circus acts.  You know, the man with the longest arms against MMA’s biggest mouth?  It is what it is.

I don’t think that the fans wanted to see that — they don’t view it as a real fight.

I’ll always have love for Chael.   I’ll definitely help him train if he needs or wants my help.  Advice?  I trained a whole training camp for Jones.  I probably have a lot of game plan in there.  But, Chael and I are just different fighters, as well.”

“Hendo” will face off with with Lyoto Machida at UFC 156 in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Feb. 2, 2013. While UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones defends his title opposite Chael Sonnen following the two coach opposite each other on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 17.

  2. Jbj vs sonnen is BS says:

    Dude we all know this fight is a joke. Jbj will beat sonnen in 1st or 2nd round. But please hendo stop sucking sonnen’ cock and tell the truth. This guy is a cheat, amateur wrestler who should be doing backyard fights. But because of hIs mouth he gets title shots. Dana you stupid moron

    say what you want about sonnen but he reminds me of a guy from the old school a guy that never turns down fights and loves to challenge himself even when he is over his head with the challenge this fight probably shouldn’t happen but besides hendo it seems he is the only only in that weight class that is not afraid and to blame him for this fight is like hating a ritch kid because he was giving his cash and didn’t have to earn it it’s not like sonnen makes the decisions around here he just has balls that most fighters don’t have

    Who gives a shit what you say Hendo, you hid your injury til the week of the fight & all other LHW’s turned down to fight JBJ. If you ask me, your’e lucky you got injured, JBJ would’ve bitch slapped you. Sonnen is the only guy to step up. If no one wants to fight JBJ, then who ever mans the F up to fight, gets a shot, F all bitch ass haters
